    The only one I know of is Bay State Cruises and I don't think it's a problem to show up the day-of to purchase tickets, but to be safe, try checking in with them a day or 2 before you plan to go.

    Bay State Cruise Company
    200 Seaport BLVD. Suite 75
    Boston, MA 02210
    Phone: 617.748.1428

    There are two fast ferry companies. Bay State which docks in S. Boston and Boston Harbor Cruises which docks an easy walk from the commons and the north end. They generally run from Mid-late June until mid October. You need to book at least a couple days ahead during the peak season, particularly on weekends. If the weather looks bad in the morning call and change your tickets to another day.
